Chris Ensor, GCHQ’s Deputy Director for the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, discusses the IT skills gap and our new CyberFirst strategy, designed to support Britain’s future national security needs in cyber space.
"CyberFirst has absolutely opened my eyes" - Jess, a current CyberFirst sponsored student, shares her view of the scheme and how she has benefitted both from the wide range of experiences the scheme offers as well as the financial assistance available.
At GCHQ we believe that success depends on great minds not thinking alike. That's why as an organisation we aspire to recruit and nurture the brightest talent and are building an inclusive workforce that reflects the diversity of the nation we serve.
In a speech entitled "Front doors and strong locks: encryption, privacy and intelligence-gathering in the digital era" Director GCHQ shares his thoughts about this pivotal topic with an influential audience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
